    Two years ago it was the Wes Anderson theme, last year it was Hidden Folk. This year it is transforming the tranquil roof terrace and ground floor into a buzzing and vibrant crayfish festival to last almost three weeks!

    Crayfish parties, or kräftskiva in Swedish, are a tradition not to be missed. Long sharing tables outdoor and indoor with an endless amount of crayfish, herring, gravadlax, chicken liver pate, bread and cheeses. Huge jars of crayfish filled and refilled to the top, Swedish beer bottles of snaps passing around for a traditional “skål!” with friends and family.

    For those who dare go all the way, there will be the traditional party hats, the snaps songs and of course a large variety of snaps to choose from. All this and so much more will be happening at Fika between July 30th and August 16th. No need for a flight ticket, step in, into a Swedish summer! Fika will be serving fresh and tasty seafood accompanied with intriguing tinctures. It is a momentary journey, away from the hipsters of the East, all the way across the North Sea. If only for a few hours. For a set price of £35 each guest will enjoy all you can eat crayfish, bread & butter, herring and gravadlax. Drinks are not included. Special diets can be accommodated upon requests minimum 24h in advance.
